20

Welcome to the 7th Kickstarter Project from Discordia Merchandising!

This time around we have the 4th installment in our unintentional, and entirely Star Wars themed, Transformative Art as Carded Enamel Pin series. 

This time from Artist and Designer Playful Gorilla. The 'Starful Gorilla Wars - Mario Trooper'! Available In various Colorways. Collect Them All! 

UPDATE: GOAL MADE ON DAY ONE! Thanks everybody!

Backing Card - Digital Mock Up with Standard White Enamel Pin.

THE PRODUCT

Based on the remarkable, one of a kind, Custom Toy Mash-up Masterpiece by the artist Playful Gorilla. Mario Trooper will be Packaged Action Figure Style! With thick Archivist Backing Cards and custom-sized miniature Blisters.

CARD BACK SIZE: 5 inches tall X 4 inches wide [12.7 X 10.16 cm.]

Digital Mock Ups aproximating the colorways White, Black, Chrome, and Glow.

COLORWAYS

Mario Trooper comes in several Colorways:

-Standard Issue White

-Fighter Pilot Gloss Black w/ Matte Black fills.

-Phasma Chrome

-Kickstarter Exclusive Glow in the Dark, (White with Epoxy Coating)

All Enamel Pins will be Black Metal with various color Soft Enamel fills and Finishes. Quality is assured. The Kickstarter Exclusive Glow Version will also have an additional layer of Clear Epoxy for a smooth finish for a better Glow Effect than non-epoxy coated pins provide.

NOTE: The Glow Edition is only available to Supporters who Pledge for the Full Sets of all 4 Pins. Get the EARLYBIRD Reward for the best price!

PIN SIZE: Approx. 1.88 inches tall X 1.125 inches wide [4.78 X 2.86 cm.] Dual posts with Rubber Clasps.

All Rewards will allow you the option of choosing your colorways when Surveys go out, after project ends. Just decide how many pins you want and select your Reward. You can always adjust and Add Additionals to your Reward later.

All prices are below future Retail. EARLYBIRD prices are close to Wholesale. 

Edition Sizes for each colorway will be determined by orders taken.

These pins are already made and in hand ready to ship when project ends! (if thats all you order)

BONUS PIN

They shut down. We get stronger. Support Independent Artists with this redesigned tribute to our favorite fallen big box toy store. Available alone or with the 4 Packs and 'Absolutely All' options. The Designer Toys R Us pins are already being made in a VERY small run so any Rewards including these pins are very limited! 

PIN SIZE: 2 inches long. White Metal with Soft Enamel Fills. Dual Posts with Rubber Clasps.

Secret Rare ARTIST PROOFS will be included with the first 7 Pledges that include the DTRU Enamel Pin. (And who complete their Surveys at project end. We won't hold onto them for anyone who waits forever to provide their address. Sorry.)

ABOUT DISCORDIA MERCHANDISING

We make cool Things. With cool Artists. We keep it Underground.

We are Cultural Ambassador Gavriel "Discordia" (supporter of over 100 Kickstarter Projects) and Supreme Overlord Starr Mignon

Discordia Merchandising has made a few enamel pins for Artists so far, such as Monster Little, Em Dub, Rato Kim, COLUS, Factory Sample, IBREAKTOYS, and Suckadelic.

We also operate Discordia Culture Shop. As seen in Clutter Magazine Issue 23. The Retail outlet for all our In-House Developments as well as Independent Clothing, Toys, Prints, and including our own line of DIY Art Toys. 

Sometimes we make things on Kickstarter, like DIY Spray Can, DIY Boxcat, and Heavy Metal Wookie.

CONCLUSION

We have a well established relationship with several competent Pin Factories. We have tested all processes, and perfected all the ways to make great enamel pins based on good art. And our unique Carded Figure Packaging uses the best possible materials we could locate. We know you will like it because we do.

You may have noticed our Goal is very low for pins with elaborate packaging. We have a low Goal because we would be making these pins with or without Kickstarter. We just love Kickstarter for the opportunities it provides Artists, and the exposure running a project can bring is a nice bonus. It's a wonderful community, don't be afraid to create. 

Make your Pledge, and Share this Project across social media. Show your Support for Playful Gorilla and all Independent Artists we work with. It is Social Media Momentum that makes all good Kickstarter projects a success. We are counting on you, Community!

Gratitude, 

Gavriel, Starr, & Alexis Rivera,

Risks and challenges

Risks? Little to none. Enamel Pins only take a few weeks to make with a factory we have worked with many times. The packaging will be made at the same time, and the assembly process should not take long at all. We have done this before, and all 6 of our Vinyl Toy and Enamel Pin projects launched over the last 2 years are completed and fulfilled. Discordia Merchandising is a production studio you can trust.

NOTE: Our Development Goals are an estimate for how long we have taken to fulfill Rewards with our past projects. Delays are possible as we keep our project goals very tight. Our constant goal is to beat the estimates when possible. We will do our best to meet or exceed the Development Goal and get your reward(s) to you ASAP.
